I often create abstracts by blurring motion – moving the camera or slowing the shutter speed. In this case, I tried something completely different, I tried freezing the motion. What I got was unexpected.
Pure texture. These images were taken with an infrared camera. I converted Fuji XE-2 using a super color filter. Depending on what I am using to white balance, I can get an image rich in purples and magenta. When I tone them down I get a shimmering copper look.
These images aren’t like the peaceful and tranquil ones I gravitate toward. They have a frenetic energy captured by the swirling water. I’ll continue to play with this technique, and perhaps experiment more in post-processing by bringing in matte like qualities.
